Redditfilter

I'm seeing Reddit stuff being posted as FPPs on a daily basis. Nothing wrong with Reddit, it's awesome, but I don't get why Reddit is never given any credit. I think giving credit is one of those things that makes Metafilter a nice place and it makes it possible to follow the related Reddit discussion. [more inside]

I'm a Ask MeFi Question Fail How Can I Change This?

I have posted eight questions total on AskMetafilter and two were immediatly deleted (a 25% fail rate!). I read the FAQs and the questions that were deleted didn't fit into the "what not to post" arena, they weren't rude or anything. One was is X legal and the other was adventurous ideas for a family. How do I know what questions are appropriate to ask?

Meta-Etiquette?

I recently posted an AskMe which received no responses. I realize (and knew at the time), the question I asked was quite narrow and didn't expect many responses (it had to do with an esoteric business management theory). So no responses doesn't really surprise me. Yet 5 users marked it as a favorite. I'm interested in finding out why people marked it as a favorite. Is it acceptable MeTa-quette to MeFi-mail them and ask if they're willing to share why they favorited it?

Delta loses dog.

I can see Cortex's point in deeming my FPP about Delta airlines losing a dog as thin. But I was hoping that a MeFite local to Mexico City might have some suggestions about findings the dog. Delta claim that it escaped. Isn't it worth leaving the post, to have suggestions about locating it? Perhaps I should have made this clearer in my post?

Where's the line drawn on public figures and privacy?

In this thread, regarding the attacks and vandalism on Democratic Party offices nationwide, I requested a photograph of Mike Vanderboegh, the Tea Party activist who has been in the news for inciting these attacks. He has been discussed widely in mainstream media. When I asked if there were any photos of Vanderboegh, cortex said "can we please not do this" and jessamyn asked me to take it to MetaTalk if I had a problem with it. [more inside]

seething homophobia. seething.

In the recent thread on the pitfalls of writing realistic LGBT characters, I stated how I didn't feel the "predatory gay man" trope was completely out of line given how I had encountered such people in real life. Great nastiness ensued. [more inside]

Is it OK to bring up someone's meta-history?

When, if ever, is it appropriate to bring up someone's past posts or comments? Does the etiquette vary by subsite (green/blue/gray)? This isn't a callout; I just haven't seen it discussed here.
